One day until the Ball. You have to give props to your Birthday Ball Committee. They have pulled together a heck of an event. They have procured sponsorships and sold ads for the program book in order to provide you with a very nice Ball. They have used their resources to get things we need such as gifts and decorations and still allowed us to get a great meal and event to you for just $35.00!! As the Chair, all I really have to do is watch them do their magic and help with decisions. So this Ball is really their fine work.
Yes we are sold out at 242 seats. There's a little fluctuation with emergencies here and there but there always seems to be someone standing by waiting for a seat to come open. Our guests will enjoy a traditional ceremony, some USO Show style entertainment, a silent auction, a live auction, dinner and dancing, and two bars featuring free beer. The Marines know how to throw a party.
Looking forward to tomorrow. Once that is done, we will take a break to enjoy our holidays, then begin work on next year's event which will be on November 4th at the same location. Semper Fi. - Scott DuPree
